Package: debian-installer
Version: 20121114
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When running automatic installation with preseed file, the installer
fails to download the preseed config file if provided from a HTTPS
location, e.g.

The limitation is that of BusyBox's wget, which doesn't handle

Since original wget is part of base install and thus inherently
present on the medium, can't it somehow be used instead of the
BusyBox version?

Ah, it seems my previous testcases were fault in some way; I've just
tried with debian-9.1.0-amd64-netinst.iso from cdimage.debian.org,

   auto url=https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/example-preseed.txt

… and it works. Closing bug & thank you all for your work!
